A$AP Rocky Faces Lawsuit for Incident With Concertgoer

Woman wants at least $75K from the Harlem rapper for an alleged slap at a Philadelphia show.

Published July 22, 2014

An alleged assault last year is still haunting A$AP Rocky. Lisamarie Wade, who accused him of slapping her in the face at a Philadelphia show in September 2013, is now suing the "F---in' Problems" rapper.

According to Wade, she was enjoying 2 Chainz's set at the Made in America Festival when Rocky began making his way through the crowd towards the stage. Amid the chaos, she said, he made eye contact with her and then, with no apparent reason, hit her. She called in to TMZ and said she felt "dizzy," suffered bruising, and had to leave the concert to go to the hospital.

At first, she had no intention of suing, she said in 2013, but she did want him prosecuted.

"There's no excuse for a man to ever hit a female. Ever. ... I want to make sure that he gets prosecuted for this and gets in trouble because this isn't the first time he's done it," she added, likely referencing another alleged incident with A$AP Rocky and female fan at a concert in Australia just two months before. "And this isn't the first time that somebody, a performer or a rap star or somebody famous, has hit somebody in the face and not gotten in trouble for it," she said.

Wade now wants at least $75,000, claiming as a "young, single mother," the incident has hindered her ability to "enjoy society with her minor child."

She attempted to serve him with a private criminal complaint for assault and harassment soon after the show, but was unable to locate him.

Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky isn't always the one bringing the supposed ruckus, he's tried to calm rowdy crowd behavior at least once.
